One of the most special parts of the #DisneyCastLife is the opportunity to meet and learn from people around the world. Whether it’s international guests or fellow cast, we have an amazing opportunity to be part of a global community. 

This is especially true at EPCOT as the EPCOT Worldwide Family is about to get an entire galaxy bigger with the awesome addition of Wonders of Xandar – the park’s first “other-world” showcase pavilion. 

Earlier today, EPCOT cast were invited to a cast-only Xandarian Expo to help them learn more about their new intergalactic neighbors in preparation for the official debut of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, opening at the Wonders of Xandar pavilion on May 27.

During the expo, the Xandarian emissaries who will be stationed here on Terra (aka Earth) shared aspects of their culture with the EPCOT cast. From language and technology to intergalactic history, there is a lot to learn about the planet.

One especially eye-catching moment at the expo was the first glimpse of the Xandarian fashion that will soon be seen in Wonders of Xandar, as EPCOT cast got a first glimpse of the uniforms that the Xandarian Nova Corps emissaries wear.

  • So this morning previews signup were sent out to APs. Being an annual passholder I was hoping for an email but I’ve received nothing? Is Disney being selective with who receive a preview for Guardians?
